MATV / SMATV Systems
Satellites have been the primary medium for the distribution of television programming. The reason is simple: no other technology matches satellite for its ability to affordably distribute video content across wide distances, to literally an unlimited number of viewers.
Cable companies receive their programming via satellite and then send it out to subscribers through hundreds, if not thousands of miles of coax cable. Even when cable companies use the highest quality components, the signal quality on their system still degrades. You are also limited to mass market programming that appeals to the majority of subscribers.
SMATV (Satellite Master Antenna Television) allows you to receive programming straight from the satellite. You can choose which programming you want, taking advantage of special corporate broadcasts, distance learning programming, sporting events, and foreign language programming. Orientals supplies and installs all products and systems required to build TV distribution networks in multiple reception sites, i.e., Satellite Master Antenna Television (SMATV) RF headends and IF distribution systems.
